One of the most important elements of our site is the classified advertising section. We upload every recruitment advertisement carried in the newspaper. Now, though, there is a fast search facility, so that you can look through all the jobs that you might want to apply for.

For advertisers:
We continue to include all recruitment advertisements in the paper and on the website.

Just £149 + VAT gets your advertisement into Church Times and Church Times website.

This is an opportunity to list your church, with or without a picture, in this successful, long-running section of the paper. An entry in the newspaper will cost you just £149 a year.

To help fund the site, we are accepting a number of banner advertisements. Banners: these come in a choice of two sizes. They appear randomly through the site, so that each banner advertisement has an equal chance of being seen by visitors, even if they simply visit a bookmarked page of the site. A back-office reporting structure enables us to demonstrate to advertisers the number of times their advertisements show up on screen. Costs are based on a rate per thousand page impressions or you can purchase an annual contract from as little as £1599 + VAT
